Overview

The University of Auckland requires an Underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) that will be used to gather data and imagery for researchers and students in the University’s Institute of Marine Science.
We expect the ROV system to support current and future research programmes in seafloor modelling and ecological monitoring as well as helping to achieve core teaching and educational outreach goals. The ROV will also be used in outreach and engagement programmes. Daily field use is estimated to be a maximum of 8 hours dive time.
It is important that the system has precise positioning capabilities, can capture footage to a high quality, and is durable and reliable enough for operation in a challenging marine environment.
